Lutan Fyah, Eek A Mouse, and Scientist. Spaker is now gearing up to support his release his debut solo album, a collection of productions from the past five years of writing. His debut full-length, Sharp & Ready on Easy Star Records debuted at #3 on Itunes & #5 on the Billboard charts.
Years of international & domestic touring give Double Tiger a uniquely cultured palate that separates itself from many American reggae offerings. Double Tiger proves that tradition and innovation are more multi-dimensional than a spectrum analysis would suggest, by fusing aspects of both progressive future roots reggae with the energy and understanding of the authentic sound system culture that helped popularize the genre by making it more accessible.

“Double tiger is using his style as a way to share the gospel of sound system culture with other music scenes beyond reggae”
– Mtv Iggy
